In rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey, where Mein Kampf is a perennial bestseller, the truths about the Holocaust communicated by this magnificent and harrowing film must not be told. To tell them would be “Islamophobic.”
“Turkish Government Fines Kurdish Channel For Showing the Holocaust Film The Pianist,” Tom Gross, September 17, 2014:
The Turkish State Council for Radio and Television has fined the Kurdish channel Gün TV for showing the Oscar-winning drama film about Wladyslaw Szpilman (played by Adrien Brody) a Jewish pianist who survived the Holocaust. The fine was ostensibly on the grounds that the Pianist was a violent film, even though other films on Turkish TV are much more violent.
Erdogan’s ruling party has on many occasions been accused of anti-Semitism. An opposition deputy condemned the decision to fine the channel as “ridiculous.”
